How To Buy A House

Am I Ready?  

Whether you are first-time home buyers, move-up buyers, and downsizing - relocating buyers, asking yourself this question is critical. Financially? Emotionally? Would love to chat about that with you!

Getting a REALTOR®  

I love what this couple said in their YouTube client testimony about searching reviews for a great Charlotte REALTOR®, "The first thing we looked for was a great Realtor." Having a full-time real estate professional who knows the community and the team to handle the many details of purchasing a home is critical.

Getting a Mortgage Loan Pre-Qualification  

Unless you're paying cash, having a relationship with a great mortgage lender is so very important. It helps you really understand the financial aspects for buying your new home, plus you'll have this mortgage professional during the entire process, to advise and to help you. Here's a ChoiceCarolinaHomes YouTube interview I did with a lender I work with>.

Looking at Homes  

This Charlotte area real estate search engine (where you're at now) is a great place to search for homes online. Plus my YouTube channel has hundreds of local videos of new home subdivisions for you to view HERE>. So as you educate yourself on our local market (which includes homes for sale on the SC side of Charlotte metro), you'll learn a lot. As a real estate professional licensed in both NC and SC, I'll guide you along the way until we find "just the right home" for you.

Buying the Right One  

You've done your research, you've seen homes and neighborhoods, you're ready to buy. As a New Home Construction Specialist, I do love that process of building a home with you or purchasing an inventory, Quick Move "spec" home from the builder. But I also do a lot of resale transactions and love that, too. Honestly, what I really love is serving as your Buyer's Agent in the purchase of the home you've fallen in love with. I love serving.

Getting you to the Closing Table  

Your closing (close of escrow or settlement) is handled with several professionals including the Real Estate firm, Closing Attorney and Lender. If you're borrowing for the purchase, it's important to lean on your mortgage pro for advice regarding new and even existing lines of credit. For instance, it's a bad idea to borrow to buy a new car or furniture before you close on your new home.
